Uhuru tackles Raila with a tweet and Twitter is ungovernable

It is not every day you see two presidential candidates exchange tweets which leave Kenyans scratching their heads.

On Tuesday, Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga fired a string of tweets attacking Jubilee’s President Uhuru Kenyatta over the standoff on the printing of presidential ballot papers and its potential effect on the August 8 elections .

The Nasa flagbearer tweeted; “Uhuru is unashamedly propagating “Nusu mkate” fantasies and lies no one believes. We have no plans of sharing power with you Mr President.”

Instead of attacking the Nasa leader, the handlers of President Kenyatta’s account responded with a simple reply.

My brother @RailaOdinga Happy to see you’ve recovered well.

Netizens could not hold back. Supporters of the two candidates started clapping back at each other.

Here are some of the exchanges. You be judge.
